Furniture, accessories, beautiful "things": proposals of several types that at the beginning of the century have captured the attention of market and experts and could enter the icons group that represent an era, the first twenty years of the third millennium. Too early to enter design museums that historicize the symbols of time. So let's try to, with the guidance of an expert and talent-scout like Giulio Cappellini. Perhaps a personal choice, as befits an authoritative curator who launched many young designers who later became "great".

We enter this theater of excellence with companies that honor us for their refined design and quality. Starting with Lamborghini...

In Weil am Rhein, a German town that limits with Switzerland, the Bouroullec brothershave created for Vitra Designweg a path of miniatures that trace the route to the famous Vitra Campus.

Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, two of the most influential and well-known designers in the world, have designed for Vitra, a Swiss company known for having produced some of the most representative pieces of contemporary desing, Designweg. The public installation consists in a path of 12 spinning glass columns inside enclosing the Vitra Miniatures: a selection of design miniatures created by Vitra Design Museum...


Milan, the city of fashion and design par excellence: comfort, attention to detail, measured shapes, discreet colours. Thinking of a Milanese living and of the creations by great designers who, in the Milanese metropolis have distinguished themselves, these elements seem to be fundamental. 

Their presence is a stylistic signature for Trussardi Casa, a protagonist of contemporary elegance. Both designed by Carlo Colombo, the armchair Sit 414, launched in 2014 and the family of coffee tables Monny produced in 2018, represent within the CULT&MUST design itinerary, two examples of contemporary classicism and high craftsmanship...


At the beginning of the day, before a meeting, before the end of the lunch break. Having a coffee is a ritual to start a new moment of the day. 

Inclusive and transversal, espresso has a whole community of fans, from bartenders to roasters, from colleagues to the guests we receive in the office, up to families that want to choose high quality ingredients, great taste, production methods responding to ethic and sustainable criteria. The new espresso machine Eagle One Prima by Victoria Arduino reflects the evolution of espresso...


Fragile objects, jealously guarded for their grace and beauty, handed down from generation to generation, Ginori’s porcelains open us to a universe of suggestions, memories and projects.

Almost three centuries of activity, countless fantasies, decorations that populated so many tables all over the world, making them beautiful. Royal houses, gala dinners but also many families’ festivities celebrated with joy and care, have been embellished by this famous tableware. 


We missed the possibility of traveling, visiting family and friends, discovering new places, returning to our favourite destinations so much. This way of life, almost a daily habit for frequent travellers, is becoming a real possibility again, together with one of our greatest desires: to pack our bags. 

Baulificio Italiano is a true point of reference in the world of luggage, a three generations family-owned company, whose creations stand out thanks to their excellence. Practical, durable, made with innovative materials and characterised by a linear stile to keep the pace with the ever-evolving trends, each Baulificio Italiano piece of luggage is an example of Made in Italy...


Wallpaper is a poetic, romantic element of great communicative power. If we see a room decorated with wallpaper, we’ll remember it for long. Intervening on walls is the most ancestral and immediate form of expression, from the Lascaux graffiti to the Pompeian paintings, the great baroque frescoes up to the South American murals and contemporary street art... 

Decorating the walls around us is a creative necessity, present in our DNA since we are children, and that now Or.nami and its creative director Gabriella Fusillo, sublimate through a series of mural artworks...


The spiral is a fascinating geometric shape, synthesis of movement and composure, it contains a link with the centre and an impetus towards the outside. The wash basin Roll by Ceramica Flaminia is a thin spiral recalling a gently rolled sheet of paper standing as a small, polished monolith in the centre of the room in the Monoroll column version or emerging as a crystalline water pond in the wall mounted version. 

Designed by studio Nendo, Roll is an example of the playful aesthetic characterising the work of Oki Sato where small daily rituals become moments of wonder and joy. Here paper, a humble material but so important in the Japanese tradition...


Catifa: a word that means “carpet” in Catalan and sounds as the name of an Arabian Nights princess. Catifa is the iconic arper chair designed by studio Lievore Altherr Molina in 7 collections. The inspiration comes from Aladdin’s flying carpet. A magic object with a simple design, a symbol of freedom with a precise shape. Catifa 46 is a seat conceived for many purposes: to stop and rest, focus your thoughts, chat, work comfortably and airily.

It’s easy to encounter this beautiful chair as a piece of furniture in an office, a showroom or a public space, the fields where arper is a leading brand, but Catifa 46 responds to many more wishes. The stool version is perfect for a cosy and contemporary kitchen, the stackable one is the ideal piece to set up a parterre rapidly and sleekly...


Like the volumes that emerge from metaphysical landscapes, clay is an essential sculpture table, composed of simple and perfectly matched graphic signs, daring in their balance. The base, a solid and compact cone thins in a hazard of proportions to merge and explode in its top, formed by an inverted cone. A controlled equilibrium achievable only thanks to the technical and artisanal knowledge of Desalto. Round or oval, the clay table is a design piece that gives tone and personality to an environment where different souls coexist or  it can be the only protagonist of a minimalist set design.

Created in 2015 by designer Marc Krusin who began his career in Milan, clay embodies the image and substance of a young Italian brand, Desalto...


April is the Milan Design Week month. Waiting for Fuorisalone in September, the city and all design protagonists are strongly coming back into the limelight thanks to the second edition of Milan Design City. Superstudio is there with CULT&MUST, an event that will see its physical edition as soon as possible in synergy with a group of great design companies, daring to live actively with the present moment. The goal is to give voice to the design world, to keep design in the foreground and to begin a journey among a selection of objects of desire that have entered our daily lives.

CULT&MUST 2000/2020 is an act of love for design and designers that from 2000 to 2020 have marked the international scene by creating solutions, objects, furniture, decorations capable to affect our lives, gestures and to have an impact on everyday-life aesthetics, perception of domestic environments and social spaces...


Despite the feeling of uncertainty among some business operators and the long wait for a statement by the Salone del Mobile, Design's Fuorisalone, the most important communication and creativity event that has created MILAN DESIGN WEEK and distinguished Milan for more than twenty years, in 2021 will take place. Promoters' leading group has already confirmed its intention to start again with a special edition in September. Superstudio, pioneer and founder of Design "movement" widespread in the Districts, increases its exhibition venues and confirms its commitment. Its Superdesign Show will be there in September. With R/evolution, the general title for an edition that will look far through different projects. With R/evolution, the general title for an edition that will look far through different projects.
